I don't believe Muslims all support terrorists, but I do believe they are threatened by our culture. They want to keep their women subservient and their lifestyle extremely simple. That is the root cause of all our problems.


lets not forget that the terrorist population in the middle east is the equivalent to the entire united states population.

obviously not all muslims are going to support terrorism. there are thousands of muslims in the middle east that are extremely grateful for our presence over there. however, the "terrorist population" point i made above is what should trouble every one of us.

we've made ridiculous amounts of positive progress in the middle east, and its absolutely absurd that the liberal media wont speak a lick about any of it. decades from now, if all pans out in the middle east, bush will go down as one of the greatest presidents in the history of the united states.

Where did you get that from? I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I just have never heard that...

If you count all the body parts after the explosions, that's pretty accurate, isn't it?

i know it seems far-fetched...i was skeptical about it as well. i heard it on the national geographic channel during some middle east special, as well as the documentary "obsession" that was done on the middle east also. besides, the muslim population by far populates the majority of the world, so if you take that into consideration it could very well be true.

I think "documentary" might be a bit of a stretch concerning that particular piece of work

Because I watched the DVD and it was rife with propaganda, to call it a documentary is a complete misnomer

I lived in the Middle East for a while. Most of them were pretty nice to me and the other Americans I knew. As long as we respected their customs, we were treated fairly well.
